Being an eccentric myself, as my "coleague" express it, I am gonna download this book. Perhaps I will understand it better, as from an "eccentric" to another.
Taa Daa!

p.s. thank you for the next book recommendation falling into the same category.

Subject: An Obsolete Readingbook
I seriously wonder why anybody would take the trouble to digitize this book. It has only a antiquarian and curiosity value, but no scientific or educational value at all. Wallis Budge was already an eccentric in his own time, using an antiquated transliteration script; all his publications on Egyptian writing and language are hopelessly out of date. To use this as a readingbook to study Egyptian language and writing is the same as using 19th century textbooks on physical or chemical studies in present-day classes: the study of the Egyptian language and writing has made huge progress since then. A far better advice for a readingbook would be A. de Buck's 'Egyptian Readingbook'.
